On this project, we combined the skills of both our carpenters and sheet metal craftsmen. Together they installed all the window flashings and wall barrier by VaproShield. Our carpenters installed the windows, sliders, seismic joints and cornice bracing. They also installed 8 1/2 squares of clear plywood with custom trim, 140 squares of 4' x 10' Hardie Panel, 40 squares of 12" exposure Hardie lap siding and 60 squares of Hardie soffit. Our sheet metal workers installed all the integral metal Hardie assembly flashings, coping, belly bands, metal cornice, custom vents, decorative false columns and 64 squares of custom metal panels. The other area that we are very proud of is the Historical Ballard Restoration. MD Sheet Metal has crafted dentils, arched copings and ornamental shapes to recreate the facade of the original building built in the early 1900's.
On this project, we installed Cement Fiber Board made by James Hardie for the first time. The Beige and Berry wall panels are McElroy's Mega-Rib and supplied by Architectural Metal Solutions. The light-colored panels on both the interior and exterior are McElroy's 7/8" Corrugated supplied by AMS. The roof panels were run on site by AMS and installed by our crew. MD Sheet Metal fabricated all the flashing for this project including the Galvalume flashing around the CFB and the welded, tube steel downspouts.
The roof on the main building and the two covered play areas are AEP Span Klip Rib panels. The Terra Cotta and Silver Metallic panels are AEP Span Mini-V Beam. This is the first project we were asked to install CFB panels on. We declined on this project but this is what promoted the idea to expand our company to include more than just sheet metal cladding.
